A little bit of history

For many years I have passed by this old house and thinking what a shame it must’ve been a grand house at one time. Found out today that it was called Solar do Agrela and the building facing the sea is Forte dos Reis magos.

Solar do Agrela

So much history right under my nose. Caniço had various fortes the one in Atalaia forte Sao Sebastiao and the forte of Reis Magos. This forte was contracted in 1567 as a view point to safe guard ataques from pirates

At long last something is happening and restauration is in progress. I always wanted to have a closer look and today on my way back from my morning walk met up with my friend Duarte and was telling him that I’d love to have a look inside. He asks the stone masonry if we could have a closer look.

What an amazing job although still a long way to go, they found out as they were removing the ruble that at one time it had a church within. When you walk to the promenade you will see as it takes shape.
